Postinfectious FD and IBS

VorfhrenderPrsentationsnotizenMetaanalysis of six studies that demonstrated relative risk for postinfectious FD and postinfectious IBS. The relative risk and its confidence intervals (95% CI) for each study are plotted on a logarithmic sacle. The diamondshaped box represents the pooled relative risk and the 95% CI.

Do subtypes make sense?

27% non-specific

31% overlapping

Broad definition of dyspepsia

Rome 3 criteria for dyspepsia

VorfhrenderPrsentationsnotizen(A) Pooled prevalence of various endoscopic findings in studies using a broad definition of dyspepsia. (B) Pooled prevalence of various endoscopic findings in studies using the Rome criteria to define dyspepsia.


Main differential diagnoses for dyspepsia 1. Peptic ulcer (chronic) 2. GERD (w/wo esophagitis) 3. Malignant disease 4. Functional dyspepsia

Diagnosis after exclusion

AGA Technical Review on the Evaluation of Functional Dyspepsia. Gastroenterology 2005

VorfhrenderPrsentationsnotizen4 major causes

Organic causes of dyspeptic symptoms

Peptic clcer disease GERD Medications (ASA/NSAIDS, Abx) Gastroparesis Gastric neoplasm Cholelithiasis, choledocholithiasis Pancreatitis (acute or chronic) Carbohydrate malabsorption Ischemic bowel disease Other GI malignancy (ep. Pancreatic cancer) Systemic disease (DM, Thyroid, Parathyroid, CTD) Intestinal parasites

Medications and dyspepsia

NSAR cause dyspepsia in up to 20% of the patients (including COX-2 inhibitors)

COX-2 inhibitor consumation decreases, but low dose aspirin use increases

Identify: - Alendronat - Acarbose - Metformin - Orlistat - Digitalis - Theophylline - Potassium - Antibiotics (Erythromycin)

Etiology of dyspepsic symptoms ?

Alarm symptoms and signs History Weight loss


Recurrent vomiting


FA: Ca / Celiac d.

Onset > 45 yrs



Pathological status

GI bleeding signs


Anemia, Fe-deficiency



Wallace MB et al. Gut 2001; 49: 29-34

Age > 45 or any alarm symptom as predictor of major endoscopic findings

Canadian trial (7004 pts

Abdominal sonography ?

explains only rarely patients symptoms

therapeutic gain only 1-3%

- exclusion of pancreas pathology

- gallbladder stones mostly incidental

not recommended in patients < 45 years

DGVS-Leitlinien Z Gastroenterol 2001; 39:937-956

General therapeutic measures in FD ?

Explanation of benign nature of disease ("re-assurance")

Good patient-doctor relationship

Dietary counceling (diet assessment, more meals, smaller portions, less fat, avoidance of nutrients which induce symptoms)

Healthy life style

Talley et al. Am J Gastroenterol 2005 Lacy et al. AP&T 2012

Functional dyspepsia always PPI ?

41 % (PPI) vs. 32 % (placebo) RR- reduction 10 % (95% CI, 2.7% 17.3%) NNT 14

Wang WH et al. Clin Gastroenterol Hepatol 2007;5:178-85

Favors PPI Favors plac.

Metaanalysis (2007), 3725 patients

PPI effective in patients with EPS and refluxlike symptoms, less effective in patients with PDS-type dyspepsia Lower dose equivalent to standard dose (e.g.: 10 mg vs. 20 mg omeprazole)

PPI Basic therapy Effect independent of dose More effective in EPS with refluxlike symptoms

Newer data

Japan: PPI monotherapy better than H2-RA + prokinetic for PDS China: PPI more effective for treatment of epigastric burning than

pain, postprandial fullness, early satiety

VorfhrenderPrsentationsnotizenProposed treatment algorithm for FD. In this algorithm the patient with dyspepsia undergoes an upper endoscopy which, by definition, has to be grossly normal. If biopsies for Helicobacter pylori (HP) were performed and were negative (upper left corner) then the patient should be treated with a daily proton pump inhibitor (PPI). If symptoms (Sx) do not improve after 48 weeks, a therapeutic trial with a TCA should be initiated (the percentage of patients with FD symptom resolution is shown in parentheses). If upper endoscopy is grossly normal but gastric biopsies were not obtained for H. pylori, then the algorithm should begin with an assessment of H. pylori prevalence (upper right side). If present, H. pylori should be treated and the occasional patient with H. pylori will experience FD symptom resolution. If the patient is H. pylori-negative, then PPI therapy should be initiated (upper middle of diagram). The percentage of H. pylori-negative FD patients previously treated with a PPI and then a TCA, who will improve with an anti-nociceptive agent or CAM, is unknown. Therapeutic Gain (T.G.) refers to the reported symptom improvement rate above the placebo response (i.e. not including the placebo response). The overall Response Rate (R. R.) refers to the overall response rate which includes the placebo response. For example, on the right hand side of the diagram, the therapeutic gain (T.G.) of treating an FD patient who is H.P (+) has been reported as 614%. Alternatively, this portion of the figure could have been labelled using the overall response rate (R.R.) for FD symptom improvement in a patient treated for HP, which is approximately 3139%, as this includes the placebo response rate which is approximately 25%.

Zala A et al. Expert Opin Emerging Drugs 2015; 20:221-233

FD: disturbed motility, sensitivity, inflammation, brain factors GI infections are risk factors for FD Low predictive value of FD symptoms for a positive diagnosis Alarm symptoms do not reliably predict organic disease Patients with FD should at least have once a gastroscopy;

value of ultrasound is uncertain PPIs are basic FD therapy, independent if patients present

reflux-like symptoms or not HP eradication is effective in a small subgroup Some (amitryptiline) antidepressants are effective to treat FD Hypnotherapy has a long-term effect on FD symptoms Prokinetics (sulpiride; acotiamide) should be tried if PPI, HP

eradication and antidepressants have failed
